The fascia is connective tissue that covers the muscles, both separating and connecting different muscles and organs. In certain circumstances, the fascia can become inflamed, creating tender muscle areas and radiating pain. This condition is called myofascial pain syndrome, which may affect one or more muscles in a group. Our team at Hanowell Spine Clinic in Covington, GA, offers myofascial pain treatment to manage discomfort and radiating symptoms.

Myofascial pain can be caused by repetitive use or overexertion of a muscle group. It can also be triggered by lack of use, occurring commonly after an injury or surgery where a muscle group is kept immobile. Myofascial pain can accompany a spinal issue like damaged spinal discs or a severe episode like a heart attack. The difficulty in treating myofascial pain is the wide variety of causes of inflammation. The pain and tenderness can be localized or referred to other areas, due to trigger points in the affected muscles. The source of myofascial pain is not always apparent, making it harder to treat.

Resolving Fascia Inflammation

To combat myofascial pain, the inflammation of tissue and resulting trigger points in the muscles can be treated. Even though the source of irritation may not be resolved, it may manage or stop the pain. Injection therapy is used to reduce fascia inflammation or to loosen trigger points in muscles. Massage and physical therapy techniques also benefit those with myofascial pain. A blended approach to myofascial pain treatment can help control the condition and give the patient relief.

My knees were so bad I could hardly walk. After 3 injections no pain.

Dr. Michael Hanowell has relieved my sciatica pain. I was in a wheelchair and after the first epidural I was able to walk. After a recent car accident he put several injections in my back and neck which relieved the pain greatly. He and his staff are very considerate and do everything possible to work with you on relieving your pain.

Dr. Hanowell treated my sciatica pain & I went from being in a wheelchair and barely able to walk to being pain free. He is very professional, caring, and conscientious. He has given me several epidurals and trigger point injections for various issues related to age and injuries and his treatments were very effective. His staff is also very professional.
